High performance computing at scale

Unparalleled performance for HPC applications and deep learning training workloads. Data scientists and researchers are only two of many examples, who can leverage our GPU1 to ease their work. Most major deep learning frameworks, like Caffe, Tensorflow, and CNTK, are optimized for NVIDIA GPUs.

Discover the best cost to performance ratio

Our GPU1 comes at a fairly priced cost to performance ratio. Choose between four different options, from 1 to 4 GPUs coming with SSD storage from 100 GB up to 1.6 TB depending on the chosen instance type.

    Please note that GPU instances require account validation: access is provided with priority to established businesses, and is granted after a manual screening process.

A big bang for scientists

Physics Simulations, Molecular Dynamics, or Quantum Chemistry are only some of HPC sectors that benefit from the GPU resources. High and complex workloads, like Monte Carlo simulations or SLURM workloads, or calculation needs from these industries can be well handled with the Tesla P100 graphic cards.

Level up with NGC on Exoscale GPUs

Combine the simplicity and scalability of the Exoscale Cloud with the power of NVIDIA GPUs. With our Docker based template you can access the full potential of the NVIDIA GPU Cloud (NGC) and significantly reduce time to solution.

NVIDIA GPU Cloud (NGC) provides a selected set of GPU-optimized software for artificial intelligence applications, visualizations and HPC. The NGC Catalog includes containers, pre-trained models, Helm charts for Kubernetes deployments and specific AI toolkits with SDKs.

NGC catalog works with both Exoscale Compute and Exoscale SKS. The image template for SKS worker nodes embeds the optimized version of the container runtime for Nvidia cards making it quick work of starting any application from the catalog without fiddling with drivers and CUDA versions.
